They Lose More than They Gain

SCAMMERS PAY

But they lie in wait for their own blood, They lurk secretly for their own lives. So are the ways of everyone who is greedy for gain;
It takes away the life of its owners. Proverbs 1:18-19 New King James Version

As I grow older the more I see the righteous hand of Jehovah in the wicked ones lives. When they are young they laugh and believe they are getting away with scamming others. They become bitter, lonely and poor financially. Many in their old age cry and beg to die to end their pain but they must live on in a daily life of living hell. In life, they lose more than they gain. Go to a seniors home and watch those who have no visitors ( now some times they are far from family and friends so they miss them), ask those who knew them in their younger age and you will find they were scammers, deceivers and manipulators who cared about nothing and no one but themselves. Now in their final years that is all they have, themselves. In life, they lose more than they gain.

As well, I have seen those whose only goal in life is to get the most toys. They will lie, cheat and steal to get what they want. At some time they realize that those toys cannot love them in return and they have wasted their lives on what is actually very frivolous. In life, they lose more than they gain.

The problem is that the heart of the greedy and Hell have this in common: they always scream”I want more, more, more, they are never satisfied.” Joseph- Anthony:Green

Prayer:Thank you Jehovah-Naheh (the Lord who Smites) for delivering true justice to the wicked ones for their evil ways. I humbly exalt You in the name of he who defeats all evil Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sweet sunshine of Jesus’ beautiful love bless you today and every day.

Taking Matters Into Your Own Hands.

WAIT UPON GOD

 Now it came to pass in those days, when Moses was grown, that he went out to his brethren and looked at their burdens. And he saw an Egyptian beating a Hebrew, one of his brethren. So he looked this way and that way, and when he saw no one, he killed the Egyptian and hid him in the sand. And when he went out the second day, behold, two Hebrew men were fighting, and he said to the one who did the wrong, “Why are you striking your companion?” Then he said, “Who made you a prince and a judge over us? Do you intend to kill me as you killed the Egyptian?” So Moses feared and said, “Surely this thing is known!” When Pharaoh heard of this matter, he sought to kill Moses. But Moses fled from the face of Pharaoh and dwelt in the land of Midian; and he sat down by a well. Exodus 2:11-15 Holy Bible  New King James Version

Taking matters into your own hands leads to disaster. Depending upon Jehovah leads to success. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Revenge is where you want to hurt somebody worse for doing you wrong. Then they get some family and friends and get you back worse. After that you get some of your family and friends and extract even worse revenge on the perpetrators.

That is how wars start.

Even today in many parts of the world there are groups that hate each other because of something that was done centuries or even eons ago.

When I was tree planting and we had some Africans working with us we could not have certain groups in the same camp. If they were they would try to kill each other on site with axes, shovels and what ever they could get their hands on. It is insanity at its worst.

In the United States the Hatfields and Macoys was a real event that lasted about a hundred years. In Canada we had the Black Donlleys which ended in a bloody massacre.

 Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave the way open for God’s wrath [and His judicial righteousness]; for it is written [in Scripture], “Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,” says the Lord. Romans 12:19 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

The Christian is to pray for the perpetrators to be moved unto repentance and have faith that if they persist in their evil, wicked ways Jehovah will punish them appropriately.

I have witnessed Jehovahs vengeance against those who wronged my and I can assure you it is a terrifying site to see.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Hashopet (The Lord is the supreme Judge) for being the wisest and fairest Judge of them all and for vindicating me in You time and in Your way. Please bring all those who have unfairly persecuted me to a repentant heart so as to avoid Your terrible judgment. I humbly request this in the name of the Supreme Judge on the day of judgment Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

Counsel and Understanding are His.

GODS ASSURANCE

 “To God belong wisdom and power;  counsel and understanding are his. Job 12:13 Holy Bible, New International Version

Where do you go for counseling?

Some go to psychiatrists but they receive their flawed understanding from man. How many of them deal with your problems by pushing drugs on you?

I prefer to go to Jesus. The wonderful thing about Jesus is not only His infinite wisdom and power but because He suffered as we have He has been there and done it He understands everything we endure. Perhaps that is why He is called a wonderful councillor. Now He may guide you to qualified Christian counsellors or through His word and power along with His wisdom He may assist you on His own. I was blessed that He provided me with both.

Some go to these questionable counsellors you see on TV. But can they provide you with the wisdom and power that Christ can or do they go for TV ratings and your pocket book?

Some go to self help books but again, can they and do they give you individual counselling? Do they know you intimately like Jesus does? Do they love you like Jesus does? Can they bless you with power like Christ does?

Whenever I have a problem I always go to Jesus and He has a hundred per cent successes rate with me.

God delights to meet the faith of one who looks up to Him and says,“Lord, You know that I cannot do this—but I believe that You can!” –Amy Carmichael

How about you, where do you go for the best counselling?

Almighty God, who hast promised to hear the petitions of those who ask in thy Son’s Name: We beseech thee mercifully to incline thine ear to us who have now made our prayers and supplications unto thee; and grant that those things which we have asked faithfully according to thy will, may be obtained effectually, to the relief of our necessity, and to the setting forth of thy glory; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. BOOK OF COMMON PRAYER

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Ori (the Lord is my Light) for blessing me with lighting the way of life You have chosen for me to travel and for Your amazing wisdom and guidance to prudently resolve all the problems that darken my life. I extol Thee in the name of He whose light guides us to You and our Heavenly home Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

They are Hard but Necessary

 

REPENT

Godly sorrow brings repentance that leads to salvation and leaves no regret, but worldly sorrow brings death. 2 Corinthians 7:10 Holy Bible, New International Version

They are three of the hardest words for us to say :”I am sorry.”

How many marriages and friendships have been destroyed because the offender refused to apologize?

You know why they refuse to apologize?

PRIDE!

When on the other hand you apologize, many times, you end up feeling better than the person who was offended.

They are hard but necessary steps you must take.

If on the other hand you are proud and arrogant and refuse to apologize what right do you have to expect God to forgive you or to give you any blessings?

If you refuse to forgive others why do you expect Jehovah to forgive you? Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Please Jehovah Elohim (God our creator) create in me a humble heart that is sincerely willing to repent to any and all who I offend, including You. I implore You in the name of He who taught true repentance best Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

Why is it His Fault?

Now Sarai, Abram’s wife, had borne him no children. But she had an Egyptian slave named Hagar; so she said to Abram, “The Lord has kept me from having children. Go, sleep with my slave; perhaps I can build a family through her.”

Abram agreed to what Sarai said. So after Abram had been living in Canaan ten years, Sarai his wife took her Egyptian slave Hagar and gave her to her husband to be his wife. He slept with Hagar, and she conceived.

When she knew she was pregnant, she began to despise her mistress.  Then Sarai said to Abram, “You are responsible for the wrong I am suffering. I put my slave in your arms, and now that she knows she is pregnant, she despises me. May the Lord judge between you and me.” Genesis 16:1-5 New International Version

When Sari nagged Abram to have sex with her slave to have a child and when the slave became pregnant she lorded it over Sari. Then Sari blamed Abram.

Why was it his fault?

Was she not the one that did not have faith in Jehovah and decided to take matters into her own hands?  Was it not her that constantly nagged Abram to impregnate the slave even though she was told that the blessed child would come from her womb?

When she paid the consequences she blamed someone else.

How many times do we do that?

We do not have faith in Jehovah or patience with Him and take matters into our own hands. When things go wrong we always find someone else to blame.

KEEP YOUR HEART

The mantra of every narcissist is : “This is not my fault, it is your fault!”  Joseph- Anthony: Green

It could be in looking for a marriage partner, looking for employment or a place to live but we always need to take it to Jehovah in prayer first, wait for His reply second and finally to be obedient to His guidance when He answers.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Shalom (God of peace) grant me the wisdom to always be willing to accept reasonability for my reckless actions and to have the wisdom to take the necessary action needed to rectify my mistake so that there is peace with You, my nieghbour and in my spirit. I meekly request this in the name of He who helped Peter become right with the Master on the seashore Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

His Trouble Shall Return

He made a pit and dug it out, And has fallen into the ditch which he made. His trouble shall return upon his own head, And his violent dealing shall come down on his own crown. Psalm 7:15-16 New King James Version

We have all met, I am sure, those who delight in causing trouble.  They love to cause fights between families, they love to cause fights between friends, they love to cause fights at work or school and they love to cause fights at public events (just look at soccer matches in Europe). They get their perverted pleasure from watching others fight and the grief it causes.

Give it time. It always comes back on them. And when it happens it always happens when they least expect it and at a very inopportune time (like say door crashers at a wedding reception or at a social event where it will cause them a lot of embarrassment.

The other thing I have noticed about them is that when they are young they believe they are getting away with it but as they age (it usually begins in their forties) they find themselves friendless. When they need companionship or help there is no one there for them.

Another thing I find happens is that they end up with tormentors (say a neighbour that is constantly playing loud music and doing things to anger them and laughing in their faces. Their lives are one of constant torment.

I have seen it too many times to count (that is one advantage of being older; we get to see them receive them fruits of their labours as it were). When confronted with these wicked creatures do not take things into your own hands but leave them in the hands of Jehovah. It may seem as if they are getting away with it and you may not see Jehovahs justice but be sure they will get what they have coming to them.

WRONG WALK

The seeds you plant today you will harvest in abundance tomorrow. Be careful the type of seeds you are planting. Joseph- Anthony: Green

When justice is done, it brings joy to the righteous but terror to evildoers. Proverbs 21:15 New International Version

And will not God bring about justice for his chosen ones, who cry out to him day and night? Will he keep putting them off? I tell you, he will see that they get justice, and quickly. Luke 18:7-8 New International Version

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Hashopet  (The Lord is the Supreme Judge) for promising and delivering on Your Divine word that You will ensure true justice is done to the wicked who persecute, harm and cheat Your beloved children. I thank You in the name of the King who will deliver eternal justice on the Day of Judgment Jesus Christ. Amen.

He wants to play the judge.

 

Get out of our way,” they replied. “This fellow came here as a foreigner, and now he wants to play the judge! Genesis 19:9 New International Version

Have you ever gone to another country and when you tried to share Jesus they become violent and want to beat you or kill you?

I can think of a country where their excuse for rejecting Jesus is that it is a religion from the west. That of course, is just an excuse. Their real reason is that they are sinners and they know it. They enjoy walking in the darkness and are offended when the light comes to the.

ARROGANCE

People reject Christ for moral reasons not philosophical ones. They are sinners and they know it. Lance Havner

Prayer: Please Jehovah KalEl (voice of God) please bless me with the wisdom, grace and meekness to always share Your Holy word with others no matter the opposition to it. I sincerely request this in the name of He who proclaimed Your word in spite of intense resistance Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
